Rapper MC Stan defeated his pal Shiv Thakare to win the renowned reality television show Bigg Boss season 16 on Sunday.
Stan received the trophy, a car, and over Rs 31 lakh in prize money from host Salman Khan. Thakare finished as the first runner-up of Season 16, which started on October 1, 2022.
Priyanka Chahar Choudhary, a television performer, came in third place. Model-politician Archana Gautam came in fourth, and Shalin Bhanot, who has appeared on shows like Saat Phere: Saloni Ka Safar and Dill Mill Gayye, came in fifth.
“I am thankful to you sir for all that you have taught me. You are the most real person. I am sure my parents would be feeling very proud. Lots of love to everyone, my mandali and everyone,” Stan said to Salman after he was declared the winner.
The camaraderie between the “mandali,” which included Thakare, Sajid Khan, Abdu Rozik, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia, and Sumbul Touqeer Khan, was one of the highlights of Bigg Boss 16.
Khan and other people were surprised by Choudhary’s eviction, but she said she is overjoyed by the support that has come her way. She said, “I thought I might get evicted in one week, but after your (Khan’s) scolding, I started getting practical (about the show).”
Along with co-star Ameesha Patel, Sunny Deol promoted his next movie Gadar 2 at the grand finale, and the cast of the brand-new show Tere Ishq Mein Ghayal, hosted by Karan Kundra, was also there.
